Danny Danon: The U.S. Should Be Ashamed

The U.S. should be “ashamed” of issuing an official statement on the current violence in Gaza that called on “both sides” – Israel and Hamas – to restore calm, declared a Knesset member from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ruling Likud party today.

“I think that every American should be ashamed of such a statement coming from the administration,” said Danny Danon.

Danon, the deputy speaker of Israel’s parliament known for his hawkish views, continued: “Do you know that Hamas was the only organization worldwide that condemned the killing of Osama bin Laden? So how could the administration compare what is happening now and say both sides. It is unacceptable.”

Danon made these comments during an interview on Aaron Klein Investigative Radio on WABC Radio.

The Knesset member was reacting to an official statement on the Gaza violence from State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland that said the U.S. was “deeply concerned” by the renewed violence in southern Israel. “We condemn in the strongest terms the rocket fire from Gaza by terrorists into southern Israel… we call on both sides to make every effort to restore calm,” added the statement.

Talks Of Intervening In Syria Grows More Serious

The Obama administration and its allies and international partners have begun “serious discussions” about possible military action in Syria, the Washington Post reported this week.

In February, this column was first to report that NATO countries are strongly considering the possibility of an international deployment to Syria if the Syrian opposition does not make major advances.

The Post reported that possibilities for international intervention include directly arming opposition forces, sending troops to guard a humanitarian corridor or “safe zone” for the rebels, or an air assault on Syrian air defenses, according to officials from the United States and other nations opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Sources tell this column that the U.S. and other countries have been arming the rebels for weeks. Egyptian security officials have outlined what they said was large scale international backing for the Syrian rebels – including arms and training from the U.S., Turkey, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. Several knowledgeable Egyptian and Arab security officials claimed the U.S., Turkey and Jordan were running a training base for the rebels in the Jordanian town of Safawi.

Controversial Professor May Have Visited White House In 2010

Did Derrick A. Bell, the late Harvard Law professor now under a veritable microscope for his early association with President Obama, visit the White House two years ago?

The name “Derrick A. Bell” appears twice in the White House visitors logs for January 29 and 31, 2010. The logs show Bell visited the White House residence. Professor Bell died in October 2011.

Obama’s published schedule shows the president was inside the White House during, at least, Bell’s visit on January 29 at 9 a.m. Bell made the first appointment the day of Obama’s 2010 State of the Union address.

The White House did not return a request seeking comment.

BuzzFeed.com released a short clip from 1991 of Obama, then a Harvard law student, praising the professor at a protest and asking students to “open your hearts and open your minds to the words of Professor Derrick Bell.” Breitbart.com editors showed more of the video on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show last night, including footage of Obama hugging Bell.

The event was occasioned by Bell’s demand that Harvard hire a black woman – specifically visiting professor Regina Austin, who, like Bell, was an adherent of Critical Race Theory.

Bell is largely credited as the originator of the theory, which analyzes the way “white supremacy” and “racial power” are reproduced over time and seeks “racial emancipation” and “anti-subordination” from whites.

This column has learned that Bell previously endorsed a controversial magazine, Race Traitor, whose official motto is “treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity.” Bell also signed a credo calling for the abolishment of “the white race as a social category – in other words, eradicate white supremacy entirely.”

Bell actually has a long history of making racially divisive remarks. He was, for example, among the early critics of the June 1991 nomination of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court, stating, “To place a person who looks black and who, in conservative terms, thinks white, is an insult.”
